Oh, I still remember when I danced with you,
The night of our wedding, the last day of June;
They gathered around us, as I held your hand,
And sang to the Rose of Newfoundland.

Your mother was cryin' when she came to me,
And I saw your beauty so wild and free;
Then along came your father, as you'd understand,
He was losing the Rose I held in my hand.

Oh, I still remember the promise I made,
To cherish and love you to the end of my days;
I once was a reckless and ramblin' man,
Till I held the Rose of Newfoundland.

Now, the years in our meadow so soon were they done,
A lifetime together in a moment is gone;
When the good Lord calls us we all have to go,
I keep on singin' my Newfoundland Rose.

Oh, I still remember when I danced with you,
The night of our wedding, the last day of June;
They gathered around us, as I held your hand,
And sang to the Rose of Newfoundland.

Oh, I still remember the promise I made,
To cherish and love you to the end of my days;
I once was a reckless and ramblin' man,
Till I held the Rose of Newfoundland.

Oh, you are the Rose of Newfoundland.
